Zombies scare the hell out of me. And not in some trendy-hipster omg-I-love-The-Walking-Dead kinda way.
As do: snakes, horror movies, needles, heights, roller coasters, financial debt, cancer, and getting lost. Just to name a few.
But I do enjoy the occasional creepy-crawly. Especially at Halloween time.
What are you afraid of???
I saw one of my closest friends for the first time in over a year today. Talked for hours, ate pancakes for lunch, took purikura in the only machine in Hitachi, bought our weight in meat and then had a yakiniku party at my house. I didn’t want to let her get on that train back to Tokyo.
When Maddison Willows walks back into school a month after her brother’s brutal murder no one is shocked.
Because no one knows.
Not even Maddison.
All they know is that Maddison tried to kill herself. She has the horizontal scars on her wrists to prove it.
But, she didn’t do it.
Only I know the truth, and I intend to keep it that way. Or I had. But something is happening to Maddison, and I keep finding myself drawn to her side. Walking the streets at night in the rain, barefoot. Digging up bones in my front yard. Remembering… I have to make it stop, but it’s starting to look like I don’t know how.

I’ve decided to do NaNoWriMo again this year. This will be my 5th time. I’m looking forward to it, and I love my novel idea. If you’re also participating, please check out my NaNoWriMo Page and add me. Let’s support each other an write a novel in a month!
September passed in a torrent of unpleasantries, much as I predicted it would. But October seems promising. I started working and it’s exactly what I needed. I’m excited for Halloween, even got Baby in on the action.
The weather is turning cooler at night. I had to dig my pants and space heaters out of storage.
The wind blowing in off the ocean steals the air from my lungs.
